Crazy Amigos--Happy Birthday, Mr. Dickens

Today is Charles' Dickens 200th Birthday!

Reading Dickens was a big part of my childhood.  beginning at age 10 I read one every summer--Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Great Expectations, a Tale of Two Cities, A Christmas Carol.

illustrations from David Copperfield, a manuscript page and the portrait of Himself (made into a brush) came from Google Images
